Smile My Friend Just Got A Betta

His name is Russel, and he is a red, viel tail betta. He is so adorable! Anything I should tell her? It has been so long since I had a betta, now I have a bloodthirsty gerbil.

You could always refer her to this forum if she ever has questions on betta care :) I'm also a new betta owner and have found the advice from this forum extremely valuable! Some of the stickies about betta care are also a great resource, like http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=64078 or http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49160

I would definitely refer her here - that way, she can check her basic set-up (heater, filter, tank size, decorations, cleaning schedule, food etc) and ask any questions she may have. :)

Usually she cannot get on here since she hardly gets access to a computer... But I will try my best to get the links to her or print them.

I believe it is a 1 gallon tank. I can post a picture of it.
She also has a fake plastic plant in there, purple rocks, and a large rock thing. Russel looks mighty comfy in his tank, and he has no stress stripes.

Wow...he kind of clashes with that plant. :p

The most important things are to mak sure she has a heater and is keeping the tank between 78 and 82F, and that she is doing the necessary water changes (1 50% and 1 100% per week).

That looks like a marina betta kit. Is it?
